A Night to Remember

By: Sheryl Gonsalves

Lights, glamour, fashion, and bling! This is what embodied ‘The Catwalk’ fashion show held at The Goa Collective Bazaar in Vagator. The buzz about this event had spread through many parts of Goa which led to hundreds of people turning up who didn’t leave until the very end. 

DJ Teyjas & Friends regaled the crowds.  Eight talented designers showcased their attention-grabbing collections on 65 models who walked the ramp in an enchanting fashion. The show was opened by the glamorous Polina for Chintamani Alchemistry and it was closed by Kankaiy Indian fusion Collection which was just as fabulous.

These talented international designers draw a lot of inspiration from India which is boldly reflected in their clothing designs. They work with international scientific cuts on Indian textiles. “Our Main Show Stopper, Eva Luna Terzaghi, graced the ramp – beauty and brain behind the successful market,” revealed Hema Nagvenkar, Show Director & Coordinator.
